Quote
"To be perfectly honest I wasn't sure that I wanted to continue swimming after High School. But, after my recruiting trip my perspective of everything changed. After meeting the coaching staff and the team I remembered why I enjoyed the sport and decided I wanted to go out with a bang. So I signed on and have had no regrets, these were some of the best years of my life."
